WHITE – The driver of a gold-colored truck had some trouble with a utility pole in White early Sunday morning, and the Brookings County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the aftermath of the vehicle-pole contest.
Assistant Sheriff Scott Sebring said his office responded to a report of a hit-and-run accident near the Methodist Church in White.
The reporting party said that a gold vehicle – an SUV or a truck – struck a utility pole and an evergreen tree near the church. The incident was reported at 2:45 a.m. Sunday.
The driver left the scene of the mishap, but he or she also left some parts behind. The investigating deputy located a gold-colored molding and a heated mirror and mirror assembly.
Estimates of the damage to the pole and the tree have not yet been calculated.
